*ARTICLE UPDATED 31ST OF MAY, 2019
There have been a lot of questions about the new body so I wanted to write an article answering the most frequent ones from Instagram and Facebook.
“When is the new Inamorata 3.0 available for preorder and where can I buy it?”
Preorders should begin on Monday 3rd of June at http://www.inamoratadolls.com
“How much will the dolls cost?”
The blank dolls with one pair of hands and feet will be 900usd. OOAKs start at 1200usd. Extra hands, feet and accessories will be available separately.
“Can I get a layaway?”
Yes, the new website will have a preorder deposit and layaway options in the payment plan.
“Will this preorder be limited?”
Yes, I have paid a deposit for 50 dolls in the casters schedule and that is all for this year. The 50 dolls will include all the permutations of the skin tones and sculpts, so these will be extremely limited and rare dolls. There will be approximately 10 dolls per skin tone.
THE NEW DOLL
“What has changed?”
The new generation Inamorata 3.0 has more realistic proportions. The torso and neck are longer, the legs shorter. The torso and neck also have 5 joints instead of 2. The new shoulder mechanism made the shoulder wider and to balance that out the hips are also wider, with new enhanced mobility. The new generation comes with more optional feet and hands, and insertable eyes. In addition to all this new expression there is more sculptural detail and the body has more athletic look with strong muscular legs.
“Will the old Inamorata clothes fit the new ones?”
Loose and elastic styles might fit but since our girl has been pumping some serious iron her shoulders, legs and buttocks have moved up a size. I tried on the Sybarite Blade gown on large bust and it fits like a glove. This should make sharing clothes with other dolls easier, as the old generation Inamorata was rather petite.
“Can I get extra heads for my Inamorata doll?”
You can. The stringing mechanism is different for the 3.0 heads making it easy to swap heads. They use a o-ring with magnet closure head cap to allow people to change and move the eyes. You can save money and space by getting a two-in-one doll. Or five-in-one! I will. 😀
“Will the doll have painted or insertable eyes?”
Yes and yes. Best of both worlds. The options are:
Ready made insertable eyes so you can change eye colour and direction of the gaze.
Insertable eye base so you can make your own. DIY.
Filler eyes that can be glued in and painted for traditional look.
“Can I buy the new feet for my older Inamorata dolls?”
You can. The new generation has three pairs of feet and they fit all generations. The standard doll will come with the classic high heeled feet (upgraded with much detail) that fit most 16″ doll shoes. The new ballet feet and flats are optional, can be bought separately and come with their own shoes. If you want to order a resin shade matching an older doll you should do so in the preorder stage.
Close up of the Inamorata 3.0 feet options:
Refreshed high heeled feet in a size that makes sharing shoes easy. I added more detail to show the strain of wearing that classic 6 inch stiletto heels.
New ballet feet (with their own pointe shoes) showing all the painstaking hard work that goes into the art of ballet. I loved sculpting all the wrinkles in the soles of the feet!
New flat feet (with their own shoes too) for more relaxed Audrey Hepburn elegance. I purposefully made these in a size that fits most action figure shoes in case your doll wants to be sporty in sneakers or combat boots!
“Can I buy new hands for my older Inamorata dolls?”
Yes you can. There is a completely new pair of ballet hand sculpts, 3 other new hands sculpts, and 3 updated old favourites. All the pairs will be available to be bought separately. Like with feet, you should order at the preorder stage.
“How many head sculpts will be available?”
All 5 head sculpts have evolved new looks and have been renamed for clarity. These 5 new sculpts will continue in production, where as the older sculpts will retire. If you love an particular older head, contact me to reserve one ASAP. They can be used on the new body too (although strung together differently, making it harder to swap heads). That makes the head sculpt count 10 for the moment. I am also working on a entirely new head, my very first Anglo-Saxon one that will celebrate mature beauty. These are the new updated heads (with insertable eyes) and their evolutionary steps are:
Charo => Alita
Nnaji => Nnaji2.0 => Nsia
Miao => Midori => Chie
Valerie => Shani
Nubia => Sura
“Will you still stock the old generation streamlined bodies?”
Unfortunately my home business is too small to carry large stock and having two molds open at the caster is too expensive. There are still few streamlined bodies left, so if you prefer that please contact me to reserve one ASAP. The old body will fit the new heads too if you want to mix and match.
